Over the weekend, we had the pleasure of welcoming Ben Bennett of Digital Surveys to the Bamburgh Castle site. Ben spent some time creating laser generated three-dimensional images of both Trench 1 and Trench 3. These highly detailed images are generated by scanning the whole site with a laser from several angles, and incorporating the resulting data to give an image of the surrounding area.
You can explore examples of this technique, including work done just along the coast from us at Alnwick Castle, on the Digital Surveys website.
Ben will be back with us later in the season to do some work on the Castle Keep. We’ll keep you posted on any developments, and look forward to sharing some of his work with you soon!
